Coming Soon Trailers: Dora, The Kitchen, Scary Stories.

August revs the engine with five wide release films making a debut this week.

Coming Soon Trailers: Dora, The Kitchen, Scary Stories.

This is a thing. A thing we’ll talk about.

After last week’s solo premier of Hobbs and Shaw, we drop into fifth gear:  five films are vying to take on the box office this week.  There’s something for everyone:  Dora the Explorer should entertain families with youngsters, Scary Stories to Tell in the Dark should warm up horror fans waiting for It Chapter 2, and those looking for some noir crime thrills have The Kitchen to look forward to.  We even have Kevin Costner playing a dog in yet another canine reincarnation movie.  That’s a genre now!

The home market matches the big screen’s pace this week.  We have five home releases, ranging from a quirky science fiction comedy, to a horror about a trio of witches, and finally to Monica Bellucci playing a demoness in a schlock-tastic B-Movie called Nekrotronic.  Good times.
